The Kolkata Knight Riders changed their opening combination once again in the last match and stuck to their first opening pair, Venkatesh Iyer and Ajinkya Rahane. They opened in the early part of the tournament.
Venkatesh Iyer, who had struggled to score before being dropped, got off to a flying start in the last match, scoring 43 runs off 24 balls, and his team crossed the 60-run mark in the powerplay. KKR’s middle order is vulnerable, especially with skipper Shreyas Iyer’s batting being the main concern, and he hasn’t contributed with the bat in the last few matches.
One of the retained players, Varun Chakraborty, could not repeat last season’s performance and was eventually dropped from the team. He took a wicket against MI in his comeback match.
Sunrisers Hyderabad lost 4 back-to-back matches after winning 5 matches in a row. Kane Williamson won 8 tosses out of 11 matches in IPL2022.
Despite being one of the best bowling attacks this season, SRH conceded 190+ runs to the opposition in the last 4 matches. With Washington Sundar’s injury, SRH’s bowling line-up balance was disturbed. They are missing a quality spin bowler.
Based on what we’ve seen so far, this is going to be a high-scoring game since the pitchers are helping the batters more. At this site, anything under 180 is simple to chase. Here, the spinners will be put to work.
Average first innings score- 166
Team batting second has won 65 percent of the matches.
